im a fine watch enthusiast this piece is awesome i been wearing everyday since i bought it u can't go wrong for the money it feels great if it lasts i will buy more akribos
Just received this beautiful watch. First impressions only, will get back if operational problems. Packaging is excellent and gift suitable, watch is cushioned and protected. A pictorial manual is included, still a little difficult to decipher, especially the instruction on how to re-zero the chronograph, but I figured it out in a few minutes. This watch uses the sweep second hand as the chronograph seconds hand, a little different, but makes sense when you think about it, more visible especially if you are working with times under one minute. The sub-dial keeps the normal seconds. Mesh bands take a little getting used to, but the ease of adjustment more than makes up for the unfamiliarity. I was quickly able to reposition the buckle to give me a snug but comfortable fit. The latch on this watch has an additional safety lock down. Very nice but no info in the manual about how to adjust. Those confronting this for the first time can find Videos on You Tube showing the process. The main strength of this silver/blue tone version is its beauty. Size and weight are just right for a man, but a woman who likes larger face watches would also like it. I deducted one star because of the redundant date sub dial with date window. Makes no sense, should have either left the subdial off or used it for some other function such as day of the week or 24 hour. Seems to justify the belief that the sub dials are there for appearance only, but maybe someone reading this knows the reason. Also, the edges of the casting that attach to the band are sharp to the outside. Does not cause any discomfort but could possibly catch on clothing or even scratch skin.
Sorry, I collect watches. This Akribos XXIV is nice. The look, the weight, the feel on my arm, all very nice. Looking for a gift or in my case, a gift from me to me. This in one for the collection. Buy it!
